This new building looks great from the outside, but the small area of display space disappoints. While the earthquake section is interesting, there is little else of note.
The entrance foyer is large and a waste of space that could be put to better use.
The entrance fee of $15 is a rip-off as other council operated museums in NZ are free.
For the large amount of money spent upgrading this site, a better design and use could have been made by architects, engineers etc.
I notice similar reviews by others with similar disappointments.
Shame really! as Napier is a great city and deserves better.
